Busy opening for PADS homeless shelters

The PADS homeless shelters in Ottawa and Peru have again opened for overnight stays.

Illinois Valley PADS Executive Director Carol Alcorn says a lot of people have been looking for shelter.

Work on an expansion to the shelter in Peru should be wrapping up in the next month or so that make room for more beds.

Alcorn says volunteers are needed at both shelters and the resale stores in Ottawa and Peru.
